NS4959 : Barrhead ROC Bunker: Second ventilation shaft

taken 4 years ago, near to Gateside, East Renfrewshire, Great Britain

Barrhead ROC Bunker: Second ventilation shaft
Barrhead ROC Bunker: Second ventilation shaft
For context, and for more information, see NS4959 : Royal Observer Corps Monitoring Post, Barrhead. In that picture, this structure appears amongst the tall vegetation on the left, directly behind the NS4959 : Barrhead ROC Bunker: FSM Mount.

The ROC post had ventilation louvres beside its main access hatch (shown on the right in the first picture linked above), but the structure shown in the present view had additional louvres, and allowed air circulation, for better ventilation of the underground post.

On its left side, though obscured by vegetation, is a radio aerial cover: on another visit, not much later, I photographed it: NS4959 : Barrhead ROC Bunker: radio aerial cover.

The ROC monitoring post here at Barrhead was a master post. It is set on an east-facing slope at the edge of the Fereneze Hills, and it is less than 200 metres from Barrhead's Hillside Road, which is at the foot of the slope. From the post's location there is an unobstructed view from NNE, through E, to S.
